House of Industry Records : City of Toronto

The House of Industry fonds was provided for digitization by the City of Toronto Archives and sponsored financially by the Toronto Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society.

Fonds consists of records created, accumulated and used by staff at the House of Industry, a charitable institution which existed from 1836 to 1946. Included in the fonds are Board minutes, financial records, annual reports, photographs, client files and registers, subject files and architectural blueprints. The early years of the House of Industry are documented in minute books for the Board, Executive Committee and some sub-committees. The Board and committees considered the solicitation of funds from private and public sources, the dispersal of funds to inmates, the Casual Ward, and the out-of-door poor. A nearly complete run of Annual Reports summarizes these and other documents.

Fonds also consists of other early records, including the Superintendent's Minute Books, registers of home children, who made the House of Industry a temporary stop on their way to work for farmers and merchants in nearby counties, a record of payment to wetnurses and blankets distributed to immigrants.
